After a break during the summer holiday season, NZBloggers  started our year of events with #BRUNCHCLUB at Hello Friends + Allies Cafe in Epsom. This was one of our biggest gatherings in a long time, with 21 bloggers. A third of the group were first time attendees, and they were warmly welcomed by everyone. Before long everyone was deeply engrossed into conversation, the coffee was flowing, and menus were being pored over. The food at Hello Friends + Allies is delicious, ranging from decadent pancakes to noodle salads.

Here’s a look at some of what we ate:
